Basement Waterproofing West Allis, WI – Your Home’s Sill Plate – West Allis, WI
Did you know that your home’s foundation is made up of 2 separate pours of concrete? Seems logical, I know, but these separations are important to consider as they can become points of entry for water over time. The average poured concrete foundation is made up of 3 parts: the footer, the foundation walls, and the floor. The foundation walls sit on top of the footer, and the floor is poured right on top; each section being allowed to dry before the next is poured. This presents a problem, as these seams expose your home to moisture as water pressure builds. This holds especially true for the sill plate. The sill plate is essentially the top of your foundation walls, where the foundation meets the rest of your home. This can be an especially vulnerable point of entry, but luckily can also be one of the easiest issues to fix.
